Using the "Import / Export" Function:

Using the "Contacts" and "People" applications pre-loaded the two smartphones, you can export the contacts stored on the Note II in the form of a VCF file, which can then be transferred to the HTC device via email or by using a computer.

  8. Send the email to your own Gmail address
  9. On the HTC Desire 516, launch the email app
  10. Open the previously sent email and download the attached VCF file
  11. Open the "People" application
  12. Press "Menu" > "Import / Export contacts"
  13. Select to "import from SD card" or "From phone storage" depending on the location of the downloaded file
